Baked Banana Oatmeal Muffins

I know you are all probably tired of hearing it but- I LOVE OATMEAL (have you read Oatmeal Love yet?) One of my favorite oatmeal recipes is this Baked Banana Oatmeal.  I was going to make that again this morning but instead I decided to change it up a bit and make these little oatmeal muffins (I call them muffins for lack of better word - they have no flour in them they are more of a muffin shaped baked oatmeal thingamijigy.) I was also hoping that they would make a great handheld snack later in the day when we got hungry but...the kids ate them all this morning (I may have helped a little with that) and I have none left to taste as a snack later (*note to self* add oatmeal to the shopping list so I can eat more test this out later.)  These yummy oatmeal thingamajigy's are topped with a little brown sugar at the end that gets caramelized by the broiler - so good!  Oh and I want to add that these taste great topped with peanut butter -  what doesn't?

Recipe adapted from Kath Eats Real Food 
2 large bananas 
2 cups of oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 tablespoon of brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375.
Slice one large banana and layer 1/2 the banana in a muffin tin coated with cooking spray (one slice per muffin or more if you have.)

Combine your dry ingredients in a bowl; oats, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl combine the egg,  one mashed banana ,milk and vanilla.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.  Pour on top of sliced  bananas and then top with remaining bananas slices.

Bake for 20 minutes.  After the 20 minutes top the oatmeal and bananas with the brown sugar and increase the heat to broil.  Broil for 3-4 minutes until the top is bubbly golden brown.

  1. I love oatmeal, too! Bake several different kinds of bread with it, and we have muesli almost every morning.
    These little things sound really nice, and baked banana taste great, anyway.
    Nice kids - ours are all grown up.

  2. Oatmeal is a winner! your kids look like they're loving these - a delicious and healthy treat!

  5. Sorry, I'm not an oatmeal afficianado - do you use instant oatmeal or regular oatmeal? I'd like to try these.

  6. I keep seeing baked oatmeal recipes but I have yet to try it. This would be a great place to start! Thanks for sharing on Taste and Tell Thursdays!

  7. Yumm! Thanks so much for sharing on craftschooling Sunday! Tried to leave a comment for your slow cooker dish, that I'm going to try, though the ad for your Etsy store was blocking the button to publish it. all the best!

  8. Did anyone try these without broiling? I want to but don't have a broiler!
